What are the pros? Delicious fruit, Low maintenan
What are the cons? Small fruit if poor conditions
Grew these in large pots in Western Washingon last year. All of the seeds I planted sprouted. This area is known for it's rain but the last few summers have been *very* dry. The melons grew well but due to limited space (because they were in pots) and inconsistent watering, the melons only grew to about baseball size. I think they are supposed to be bigger.
Still, despite the size, they were freaking delicious - like a sweeter, crisper honeydew - and they smelled amazing. Also, they continued to grow and try to produce melons until mid fall, so if you take proper care of them, you might get a very good harvest. I intend to take better care of them this year and I'm looking forward to seeing the results.
Highly, highly recommended!
